1. Old Bergen Church Marker
Inscription. The Old Bergen Church, a Dutch Reformed Church, is a classic blending of Greek Revival details and form, with New Jersey Dutch influences. Originally founded in 1662 at Bergen Avenue and Vroom Street, the church has undergone two rebuildings on this site, in 1773 and 1842, using many of the original stones.
